Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The invention relates to a crystal form of deuterated AZD9291 and a preparation method and use of the crystal form and belongs to the technical field of medicine.

BACKGROUND ART



[0002] Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane protein tyrosine kinase of the erbB receptor family. When bound to a growth factor ligand (e.g., epidermal growth factor (EGF)), the receptor can homodimerize with an additional EGFR molecule, or heterodimerize with another family member (e.g., erbB2 (HER2), erbB3 (HER3), or erbB4 (HER4)). Homodimerization and/or heterodimerization of the erbB receptor results in phosphorylation of key tyrosine residues in the intracellular domain and results in stimulation of many intracellular signaling pathways involved in cell proliferation and survival. Deregulation of erbB family signaling promotes proliferation, invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis, and tumor cell survival, and has been described in many human cancers, including lung cancer, head and neck cancer, and breast cancer.

[0003] Therefore, the erbB family represents a reasonable target for the development of anticancer drugs, such as many drugs targeting EGFR or erbB2, which are now widely used in clinical applications, including gefitinib (IRESSA™), Erlotinib (TARCEVA™) and Lapatinib (TYKERB™). Detailed discussion of erbB receptor signaling and its participation in oncogenesis is provided in both New England Journal of Medicine (2008) (No. 358, 1160-1174) and Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications (2004) (No. 319, 1-11).

[0004] Lung cancer is a cancer with the highest incidence in the world, it ranks first among all cancers in China, and it is also the cancer with the highest morbidity and mortality in China. About 30% of lung cancer patients in China have EGFR mutations, wherein L858R and exon 19 deletion mutations account for more than 90%. These patients are more sensitive to EGFR inhibitors. The existing first-generation of EGFR inhibitors, such as erlotinib and gefitinib have good curative effect on such patients, which can reduce tumors in more than 60% of patients and significantly prolong the progression-free survival of patients. However, the vast majority of patients will acquire resistance within 6-12 months. This resistance pattern is a further mutation of EGFR, which reduces its sensitivity to first-generation EGFR inhibitors. The most common of these mutations is the so-called "gatekeeper" mutation T790M (Science, 2004, Vol. 304, 1497-1500; New England Journal of Medicine 2004, 350, 2129-2139). L-threonine (T) originally at this site is replaced by L-methionine (M), and the mutated EGF tyrosine kinase R no longer binds to gefitinib or erlotinib. Thus, the first generation of EGFR inhibitors will no longer work, which results in that no drug is currently available for such patients. Clinically, 50% of patients who develop resistance to first-generation EGFR inhibitors have EGFR T790M mutations. IC50 of the first generation of EGFR inhibitors, such as gefitinib and erlotinib, was greater than 3 uM and essentially inactive in the T790M mutant cell line H1975.

[0005] In order to increase the inhibitory activity against mutations such as the resistant EGFR T790M, WO2013014448 discloses pyrimidine derivatives which are useful as EGFR inhibitors and their use for the treatment of cancer, wherein G is selected from 4,5,6,7-tetrahydropyrazole [1,5-a]pyridin-3-yl, 1H-indol-3-yl, 1-methyl-1H-indol-3-yl or pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyridine-3-yl, R2 is methyl or methoxy, and the structure of which is as follows:



[0006] In this patent publication, the compound (AZD9291) as shown in Formula III has been approved by the US FDA on November 13, 2015 and marketed (trade name: Tagrisso, AZD9291) for the treatment of the epidermal growth factor receptor EGFR T790M mutation-positive patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer.



[0007] At present, some deuterated AZD9291 compounds have been reported in CN104140418B and CN105237515A, but no crystal forms of the pharmaceutically acceptable salt of deuterated AZD9291 have been reported. A crystal form is a solid state of a drug. The study of the drug crystal form is the study of the basic state of the drug. It is impossible to find a crystal form of a drug (solid material) that is more suitable for treating the disease, unless having a full and comprehensive understanding of the crystal form of the chemical drug. The crystal form of a drug can affect physical and chemical properties of the drug, and directly affect the clinical basis of the drug to play a role in the treatment of disease. At the same time, due to the solubility of some drugs, such drugs shall be made into a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, which can greatly improve its solubility and improve the absorption and utilization of drugs. The applicant has been engaged in the research of drugs for lung cancer, started drug research on EGFR targets very early, and has obtained a series of research results6, such as patent applications CN102659692, US08916572, CN107382879, WO2017219500 and WO2018050052. During our research, it was found that the compound of formula III can enter the brain through the blood-brain barrier, and this result was also reported in Clin. Cancer Res. 2016, 22(20), 5130-5140. However, when the compound of Formula III is metabolized in the body to remove the methyl on the indole nitrogen, the compound of the formula IV (AZ5104) is formed, which cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier. Therefore, it has no effect on tumors metastasized to the brain. If the methyl on the indole nitrogen of the compound of formula III is deuterated, the metabolic stability of the methyl is increased, and the blood concentration and brain concentration in the body are improved, thereby achieving better efficacy. Therefore, it is important to study the stable crystal form of the deuterated AZD9291.

[0039] In Table 1, the 2θ angle value of the X-ray powder diffraction peak has an error range of ±0.2°. It should be understood that the 2θ value of the X-ray powder diffraction pattern may vary slightly between machines and between samples, and the range of values may differ by ± 0.2 units, therefore the recited values cannot be construed as absolute values.

[0040] Considering that the intensity of the peak represented by the 2θ angle is high or low, especially the intensity of some peaks was lower than 20% of that of the strongest peak, the accuracy of the characterized data is greatly affected by the instrument conditions, and a large error may occur. Therefore, a peak having peak intensity higher than 20% can be selected as the characteristic peak of the crystal form of the present invention.

[0041] The melting point of obtained crystal form of the compound of the formula (I) or formula (II) is 239 to 240 °C (melting point test). DSC (differential scanning calorimetry) showed a melting point between 249 °C and 254 °C.

[0042] The stability of the crystal form of the compound represented by the formula (I) or the formula (II) was further measured, and the apparatus used was a drug accelerated stability test chamber; the accelerated test condition was 40 °C, and the relative humidity was 75%. The test results are shown in Table 2.





[0043] After an accelerated test for six months in the drug accelerated stability test chamber was completed, a sample of the crystal form of the compound of the formula (I) or the formula (II) was obtained and subjected to X-ray powder diffraction analysis, and the obtained X-ray powder diffraction pattern was as shown in Fig. 2.

[0044] By comparing Fig. 1 and Fig. 2, it can be concluded that Fig. 1 is consistent with Fig. 2, and the 2θ angle value is consistent within the error range of the instrument, indicating that the crystal form of the present invention is maintained after 6 months of accelerated test.

[0045] The above experimental results show that the physicochemical properties of the crystal form are stable and the deuteration rate can be kept unchanged. The deuterated AZD9291 crystal form is suitable for drug applications, such as pharmaceutical preparations.

[0046] At the same time, we also carried out differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) on the crystal form of deuterated AZD9291 mesylate of the present invention, and the results are shown in Fig. 3. As can be seen from the DSC-TGA chart, the crystal form of the present invention has a low solvent residue and a high sample purity, which is ideal for subsequent pharmaceutical research.

[0047] Moreover, the deuterated AZD9291 mesylate crystal form of the present invention was used for oral bioavailability test in rats, and its oral bioavailability can reach 30.9%. The high bioavailability of oral administration proves that this crystal form is suitable for the development of oral preparations.

[0048] The crystal form of the compound of the formula (I) or the formula (II) obtained by the method 1 or the method 2 of the present invention is not changed in moisture absorption or the like after being left at room temperature for 1 month. At the same time, through accelerated experiments, it was found that its physical and chemical properties were also stable. The crystal form was detected by HPLC (HPLC chart was shown in Fig. 4), and HPLC detection data was shown in Table 3. Its purity was as high as 99.83%, and the content of each single impurity was below 0.1%, which was suitable for the subsequent development of active pharmaceutical ingredient and preparations as well as subsequent pharmacokinetic experiments and zoological experiments.
